Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Several computer models include two specific hardware components that enable the device to connect to the Internet: an Ethernet adapter card and a wireless adapter card.
These cards are also called network adapters, or network cards.
If your computer suffers from an intermittent Internet connection, and your Internet service provider (ISP) doesn't detect any issues on their end, you can update the software for the network adapters to resolve the intermittent connection.
If updating the adapters doesn't resolve the problem, reset the transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) and Winsock to restore the connection.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel."
Type "manager" into the search bar.
Click "Device Manager."
Expand "Network Adapters."
You should have one wired adapter and one wireless adapter, if the computer has wireless support.
Double-click each adapter.
Write down the name of the adapter, as well as the manufacturer's name.
Go to the computer or network adapter manufacturer's website if you installed the adapter to the computer yourself.
If the adapter came with the computer, go to the computer manufacturer's site instead.
Select the "Support," "Download" or "Drivers" page.
Look up your computer or adapter model.
Select your operating system.
Click the "Network," "LAN" or "Internet" category.
Download the latest adapters for your network devices.
Click "Save" or "Save As" and save the files to your desktop.
Return to Device Manager. Right-click the first device. Click "Update Driver Software."
Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software."
Follow the remaining on-screen directions to reinstall the device driver.
Repeat the process for the other network device.
Restart the computer after reinstalling the drivers to repair the intermittent Internet issue.
Log in to Windows as an administrator.
Hold down the Ctrl, Shift and Esc keys to open Windows Task Manager.
Click "File." Click "New Task." Type "cmd" and press Enter to open Command Prompt.
Type "netsh int IP reset c:\resetlog.txt" into the Command Prompt.
Press Enter to rewrite the TCP/IP registry keys.
Enter "netsh winsock reset" into the command-line prompt.
Press Enter to reset the Winsock catalog and resolve the intermittent Internet problem.

Tips for a great answer:
The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.
The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.
1. Hooking up hardware connections:
As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:
If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>
When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
5. To check the Repeaters user interface
At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:
